Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

The FJC drama club, the Collegiate Players Club, was organized on September 30, 1927 with 39 members. In 1928, the group changed its name to the Nightwalkers, “due to the dramatic mysteries connected with the club.” The Nightwalkers, shown here in 1932, were very active and participated in the production of class plays, responsible for acting, directing, costuming, stage setting, lighting, and production work. Membership in the club was based on an interest in dramatics and the ability to pass a tryout consisting of a dramatic recitation. The most significant member of the Nightwalkers was Pat Ryan (second row, sixth from left), later Pat Nixon (1912-1993), the wife of Richard M. Nixon (1913-1994), the 37th President of the United States.
